Olivia Locker - I fought the law Alabama ice cream in pocket - thechicflaneuse

It is really curious and fun this young photographer Olivia Locher‘s “I fought the law” photographic project. The artist went to search for the most strange and absurd laws in force in American states, and in an irreverent and sarcastic way, she has represented them in her photos.

The idea of ​​the project was born when a friend told her about how it was illegal to have a ice cream come in the back pocket. Curious, she examined in depth the subject and found a series of very funny laws to “break”. Several of them are still on the statue books, others have never become laws although they came close to and some were removed.

Even if it looks weird, in Utah it’s illegal to go around with a violin inside a bag, in Nevada it’s illegal to stick an American flag to a soap, or in Minnesota where it’s illegal to cross the road with a bird on the head.
